'Stop music piracy'

proud Ramesh Aravind at the audio release of Hey Sarasu.

The name S M Krishna is known to everyone by now. Specially after our Minister of External Affairs made a hash of the Indo-Pak joint statement in the Parliament and after his
humanitarian gesture to the victim of curry-bashing Down Under.

But who is S M Rama?
Actor Ramesh (Aravind for those who still do not know) posed this question at the audio release of Hey Sarasu.

Seeing the perplexed looks even on the faces of journalists assembled there, the actor quickly answered the question himself: “Director B Ramamurthy is S M Rama which means Sowmya Murthy Rama.” As usual, Ramesh had the audience in splits.

The actor is pleased to have played Mohan Lal’s role in Priyadarshan’s Chandramukhi and is confident that this remake will also see the same success as the original enjoyed. A tid-bit. Hey Sarasu is Ramamurthy’s 50th film and the fifth with Ramesh. Shankar of Orata fame has composed tunes for Hey Sarasu, whose music has been brought by Anand Audio. Mohan of Anand Audio used the occasion to steer the talk towards piracy.

Along with Lahari Velu, Mohan has been fighting for protecting audio rights and was of the opinion that only effective implementation of the Goonda Act would contain this menace. He also suggested to the film chamber to set aside a certain amount and conduct raids often to stop music piracy. That was enough to turn the mood sombre.

The film has completed shooting for a month and has now entered the post-production phase.

Producers Ganesh and Umesh Banakar plan to release Hey Sarasu next month at the earliest possible date.
